I am looking for an event monitoring dashboard with the ability to display arbitrary data. For example, Graphite/Carbon lets you push any kind of metrics and builds composable dashboards out of those graphs. Is there anything similar for event monitoring which can display arbitrary textual data? I've looked at log.io but it does not seem to support arbitrary events. Most of the data that I would be dealing with would be events from disparate systems, and not in the form of log files. The simplicity of Carbon is what I am looking for. Any suggestions?
Edit: To clarify, I already have graphical monitoring solutions in place. What I am looking for here is to display textual data like continuous status updates of, say, a deployment process.
;tldr - Any arbitrary event (textual, not graphical data) displaying dashboards out there which have easy to use clients to push data like Carbon/Graphite ?
